Late Saturday evening, there was a black, flash mob riot in downtown Chicago. Various reports indicate there were hundreds of suspects involved in the incident.
Around 8:32 p.m., Chicago News Report was informed there was a major disturbance in the 18th police district in the area of Chicago and State and Chicago and Michigan.
Approximately five minutes later, 911 callers reported a massive group of black teens throwing objects at cars near the intersection of Chicago and Milwaukee.
Sources said it was the same group of misfits who caused a disturbance downtown, early in the evening.
At the time of this report, the angry, black mob was moving westbound on Chicago Avenue.
UPDATE: Believe it or not... initially, police were told not to arrest the black rioters. However, around 9:12 p.m., downtown officers were instructed to start locking people up.
UPDATE: At 9:20 p.m., multiple arrests were reported downtown.
UPDATE: Andrew Holmes, an eyewitness to Saturday's mayhem on the Magnificent Mile, told CBS Chicago he saw teens attack a police officer on a mounted horse. The bystander also saw several teens attack random citizens on the street. According to Holmes, some of the savages involved in the ruckus are female.
